Insurance in Rideshare Accident Cases

If you’ve been injured in a rideshare accident at no fault of your own, you might be able to demand compensation for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and even your pain and suffering. However, it is also worth exploring and understanding what insurance might be available to you. Rideshare companies carry large insurance policies, but they don’t apply to all cases and situations.

Rideshare company insurance will vary based on who has been injured, such as:

  • Rideshare passengers: Uber and Lyft can provide significant insurance coverage for injured passengers who were using their rideshare services at the time of an accident. Even if you should be guaranteed as much coverage as possible, the rideshare company might fight your claim and try to minimize your injuries, so it remains a good idea to talk with our Springfield rideshare accident lawyers first.
  • Rideshare drivers: Injured rideshare drivers might be covered by Uber’s or Lyft’s insurance policy, but only if they had accepted a fare when the crash occurred. If no fare was accepted or if it is determined that the rideshare driver caused the crash, the rideshare company will likely offer reduced or no insurance coverage.
  • Other motorists and pedestrians: Liability and insurance coverage becomes even more complicated when a third party suffers an injury in a rideshare accident. For example, if you were a pedestrian, cyclist, or another motorist and a rideshare driver hit you, questions about rideshare company insurance can be complex and tiring. Do you file against the rideshare company or the driver’s auto insurance provider? Can you use your own UM/UIM coverage? Get answers to these questions and more by talking with our attorneys.

Steps to Take After a Rideshare Accident

The steps you take after a rideshare accident matter. In the first few minutes, you might have the best opportunity to get evidence of liability, so knowing what to do ahead of time is important.

If you’re in a rideshare accident, you should follow these steps:

  1. Get medical assistance: Make sure everyone is fine. Call 911 if someone is injured or vehicle debris has been left on the road and might endanger others. Even if you feel “okay” after the crash, you should go to urgent care soon after for a checkup.
  2. Gather evidence: Take photos and videos of the accident scene. Talk to eyewitnesses who stop to help. Write down the contact information of everyone involved or who wants to give a statement. Don’t forget to record any information related to the rideshare service, which might include ride and driver IDs.
  3. Report the accident: Notify the rideshare company of the accident as soon as possible, whether you are a driver or a passenger. You don’t have to go into heavy detail in the initial report.
  4. Talk to an attorney: Aaron Sachs & Associates, P.C. is always standing by to hear from injured locals in need of legal counsel. Talk to us soon after a rideshare accident to explore your rights. We can help you decide if pursuing an injury claim will be worth your time.
